Fun with Alphabets & Numbers

Slider with Swimming Pool
Alphabets and numbers are the most favorite stuffs for kids to learn during preschool. Eva always wants to play with it and sings rhymes of alphabets and numbers.

One afternoon, I gave her writing table for alphabet writing activity. Instead of writing, she became busy with sliding alphabets and numbers. I helped her to create a ladder for the slider.

Here’s what we used to create a swimming pool with slider for alphabets and numbers.

  • Folded writing board
  • Stainless steel ruler
  • Plastic alphabet letters and numbers
  • Plastic cloth clips
  • Hula Hoop

Here is how we set up this activity:

First Eva arranged the writing table by folding two legs of it and called a slider. Put hula hoop as a swimming pool besides the table. Instead of using writing table one can use a chopping board from the kitchen and arrange like an image using any box or any else.

I gave her stainless steel ruler and plastic cloth clips for making ladder to climb on a slider. She arranged all the clips on a ruler and put as a ladder. Another option could be folded thick paper, affix with table as a ladder instead of using a ruler. 
Ladder
Eva used a hula hoop for circular swimming pool. You can create any shape of pool using any stuffs like building blocks, pencils and interlocking foam mat card, etc.

She started playing like the letters & numbers are climbing the ladder and then pushing it a bit to slide through the table. One can use any stuffs like small plastic animals, pencils, small cubes or anything which kids want. If your stuff stick on a table, sprinkle some Carrom board powder or talcum powder.
Sliding letter
I noticed that while climbing the letters Eva was speaking E for Eva and E for Egg etc. She enjoyed this game too much as she loves to slide a lot in sandpit (kids area at place where we live). This activity helps to recognize the numbers and alphabet letters with sound words.

Mother’s Day Craft - Touch N Feel Card

The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom.

Mom is a sunshine of a child, helps to grow every day like flowers.

The Mother’s day craft of a child is such a precious treasure for each and every mom. This Mother's Day Card is such a sweet homemade gift for me from my little angel Eva. She made a Touch N Feel card for me. Although Eva injured in her fingers of left hand before two days, she made this card using a single hand and that’s why it really touched my heart.  
Finger Printed Mother's Day Card
Eva started to make this card before two days. Saturday morning she told me to give her a card because she wanted to complete it before Sunday morning. I helped her and drew two sleeping lines on a card and told her to write between the two lines. Then I wrote Happy Mother’s Day on a blackboard so that she can copy these letters on a card accordingly. First she wrote with pencil, then colored with crayons. She made a colorful border using crayons on the card. It’s such a great fun for her.

Then I gave her glue, sequins and our photographs to decorate the card. She made a finger print flowers and butterfly with watercolor. I helped her to cut the shapes of the Sun and Sunrays. She affixed it on a paper.

The Touch N Feel card helps to recognize the alphabet letters without watching it. You can play a game of finding letters by closing your eyes. It’s a fine motor activity for preschooler kids. This easy mother’s day craft helps your innovative kids to explore their creativity.

Really, it’s such a heartthrob gift for me. To show love I also gave her a puzzle game and a building box game as a return gift, cooked sweet dish and food she loves and made homemade ice cream for her. Overall, we spent a very lovely and memorable mother’s day.

Hope you all had a fantastic special weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms.
